Today, we are going to be talking about making mobile apps live, or more specifically, what is the best checklist for making your mobile app live.
If you are new in the mobile apps business, there are several things you need to know. This is a sort of a check list of all things you need to do to make your mobile app live, which will help you stay organized and on track.
- First, define your objectives and the planning process. Draft a short time plan, which includes registration to the service you plan to use, device support, graphic assets etc. Sometimes, it takes several months until everything is ready, so make sure you set the date of release of your application so you can plan the entire process according to that.
- The next item on our checklist is the name of the app. It is surely one of the most important elements in the entire process. In addition, don’t forget about the keywords potential clients would use to search for your application online. Including several keywords in the description is certainly wise, but before doing so, checks if there is an application with similar name or description to avoid confusion.
- Next, describe your application. Google allows its users to use up to 4000 characters to describe their applications, so use them wisely. Feel free to use features, keywords, benefits etc. in the application description. As it will help you to get on top result when somebody searches an application on Google Play or Apple Store.
- Listen to the feedback of your potential clients. When launching a new and improved version of your mobile app, promote each update, so your potential clients are up-to-date. Listen to their suggestions and proposals and respond to them. In this way you will make excellent impression with your potential clients and improve your work based on advices which are completely free of charge.
- If you are planning to launch your application on the international market, don’t forget to define a default language and have your application translated in several other languages. As most of the people prefer to have their application in their native language to feel more connected and attached.
- Don’t forget about the number of the version. Certain web services don’t allow for the version number and control to be changed once the application is in process of review, so do this in advance. In addition, provide information about the copyright.
